The purpose of the string is to help you hang the balloon to dry after you complete the project. The next step is wrapping the crochet cotton around the balloon.

After you finish the project you can secure the end of the string underneath another layer to ensure that it doesn’t become loose.Now mix up a half cup of warm water together with a cup of sugar. Stir the two together till when the whole amount of sugar gets dissolved. The mixture will become thick and will have a consistency that is glue like. No place the string wrapped balloon right in the middle of the water/sugar mixture and ensure that the whole mixture get wet. After guaranteeing that the whole mixture is entirely wet hang the project outside or somewhere it will dry without interruptions. The drying process may take between 12 to 24 hours. When it dries of completely pop and remove the balloon. Now you can spend time shaping the basket and add ribbon, little bunnies, and Easter grass to make the project more festive. If you wish to store and keep the eggs you need to spray them with clear spray paint and voila! Your project will be stunning! Enjoy!!!
